OVERVIEW

Meet Dr. Adam Goodman I am fortunate to have found orthodontics as a profession. It is uniquely rewarding. A good orthodontist must possess several attributes: a keen eye for angles and spatial relationships, good listening and communication skills, and the ability to balance theoretical and practical concerns. As a child, I told everyone that I wanted to be a dentist, and when I was admitted to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1985, my dream became a reality. The early days of dental school were challenging because dental students need to develop manual dexterity and artistic skills. As my natural abilities leaned toward mechanical drawing, solving puzzles, and model building, I gravitated towards orthodontics. While the end result of orthodontic treatment is seen as cosmetic artistry, it is really all about the angles and spatial relationships, like the puzzles and building projects I enjoyed as a child. After completing my orthodontic residency at Montefiore Medical Center in 1993, I developed a practice philosophy that involved the patient in his or her own treatment. A natural fit was my early incorporation of a new technique called Invisalign in 1999. I soon was hired by Invisalign to teach other orthodontists around the country about this technique, and to this day, I remain an important part of the Invisalign Faculty. In November, 2010 I presented Invisalign lectures at both the International Invisalign Summit, as well as for the prestigious Greater New York Dental Meeting. In 2009, I appeared on Fox 5-TV, which did a profile on Invisalign Teen (a technique specifically designed for teenagers and young adults). While Invisalign constitutes one part of my practice, more cases are treated in our offices with fixed braces. Not only do we use the most advanced orthodontic brackets and diagnostic tools, we were the first office in the New York City area to incorporate the SureSmile system, a technique using computer diagnostics and robotic wires which elevates orthodontic treatment to a new level of efficiency and precision. When not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my three children, whether it be on the field or the living room sofa in front of the TV. In my quiet time, I love to read, probably consuming about 30 books a year. I also have been dabbling in some stand-up comedy: "Your teeth are soooooo ugly…you should probably go to an orthodontist..ha ha ha".
